An Alabama police officer recently lost his job after he allegedly made a false report regarding a shooting.

Criminal law: Why was I charged with resisting arrest?

A charge for resisting arrest may be confusing for some defendants. This type of charge is commonly associated with violent behavior or actions that are directly resisting an officer's orders.

Criminal charges can have serious, real-life consequences for defendants' personal and professional lives. Depending on a person's career, the individual could possibly end up losing his or her job even without a conviction.

This is why dealing with criminal law matters in a prompt and vigorous manner can be extremely beneficial for many defendants.

It might not be uncommon to hear someone say that a dish is so delicious that it would make a person want to slap their grandmother.

Criminal defense: Alabama defensive lineman arrested

Police in Alabama recently arrested a young man on allegations of public intoxication. The defendant -- a defensive lineman for the University of Alabama football team -- had his bail set at $500, and at last update appeared to still be in police custody.
